When conversations collide ...

Recently, I inherited an old iphone/ipod dock-speaker setup from spike, who graduated to a better one. When I first set it up, though, it had some weird noise mixed into music when I tried to play it off my phone, and spike suggested I clean the connection with rubbing alcohol and a lint-free rag and try again. I did, but then forgot to tell him about it, until the other night, in the midst of a conversation about his considering taking his 7yo to a play that would run late.

You know how, on IM, you sometimes carry on two conversations at a time, kind of interweaving them more or less seamlessly but still understanding which comments refer to which conversation?

Yeah. And you know how, sometimes, that doesn't so much work? And that can be confusing, but you usually figure it out pretty quickly? Well, every once in a while, it takes a little longer.Collapse )
